The origins of the church are 13th century. The interior contains some 18th century funerary monuments, which Pevsner considers "very grand" for their modest setting, and a set of panelled box pews and pulpit. The church was lightly restored in 1870. The organ dates from 1917, and was a gift of Mary Earle Gwynne of Folkington, in memory of the men of the village who died in World War One. It remains an active parish church.
The graveyard contains the grave of the cookery writer Elizabeth David, marked by a slate headstone carved in 1992 by local stonemason Geoffrey Aldred and the grave of the musician Violet Gordon-Woodhouse, who specialised in the harpsichord and clavichord, and was influential in bringing both instruments back into fashion..
Just inside the door, on the left-hand side wall is a small stone relief sculpture, commissioned by the family of Ronald Stacy Marks, by John Skelton (sculptor).
